Typhlophile Tuesday: Caring For The Blind ❤️

Blindman Trail Marathon Training – Week 8/12 – Day 2…6 Miles…💪🏼

Hi all. Well that was easily the worst walk of my training so far! After yesterday’s blitzing laps, today couldn’t have been more opposite. I knew it was going to be bad when the laser beam sun was trying to kill me and i hadn’t left the house yet! 😨 I would love to be able to describe my eye sight to you when i’m on the trail and it’s a white out with the sun, my eyes are constantly streaming and it’s ice cold too…But i’ve never seen anything like it (never mind experience it) even when i was fully sighted so i can’t!! 😭

Even though i only had 2 laps to do this morning it was the hardest, slowest and most exhausting walk so far. I was staggering along the trail like a 1980’s Zombie as i could hardly even lift my feet never mind see where i was going…I was zigzagging my way around and just wanted to quit. I was pleased when i had to stop to take the photo of the stew pond, and was thankful that i didn’t fall in!

When i eventually arrived back home to a colossal coffee, hob nob and hug from my lovely wife Sarah, i collapsed for a while until my apple watch notified me that i’d achieved another award…🤔

The “International Women’s Day” Challenge Award…

I’d like to honour my lovely wife Sarah with this award!

My heart overflows with love for my stupendous wife Sarah. She has encouraged, inspired and loves me in spite of all my faults, she is the beautiful sunshine that warms me along my journey. I really don’t have the words to fully express how blessed i am to have my best friend as my wife to cherish and share every moment of this amazing life!

Let’s ‘FitBlitz’ 2022 together!! 💪🏼

Typhlophile Defenition…

One who is kind to the blind.

Sarah told me to add a definition as she says i’m probably making half of the words up, lol! 🤣

  1. Hey friend Steve,

    What an inspiring blog! And what an awesome tribute to your lovely wife Sarah. I hope and pray that I can meet you both in person some day. (Hah, we can’t wait to get back to the U.K.)

    Keep on walking!

    Hugs,
    Nancy

    1. Hi Nancy!

      Thank you so much for your kind and encouraging words! We’d love to meet up with you guys…That would just be amazing! The Blind Sightseers have never been to USA mainland either, so how cool would it be if we could also get over there?! 😲

      Either way we’ll all pray that one day we can finally meet! 💪🏼 😀

      Steve & Sarah
